Mr Scrimshire joined SHU in 2014 as a post-graduate teaching assistant, contributing to material science and engineering subjects for undergraduate students. Alex’s PhD focused on Mössbauer spectroscopy of energy storage and catalyst materials and has gained subsequent expertise with glass and ceramic materials in his current role as a postdoctoral research associate.
Alex gained a BEng (Hons) degree in Forensic Engineering from Sheffield Hallam University in 2014. He remained at SHU to complete his PhD studies in advanced characterisation techniques of catalytic and energy storage materials. Alex’s main expertise is with Mössbauer spectroscopy, although experienced in other forms of material characterisation.
During his time at SHU Alex has delivered material on undergraduate modules for material science and metallurgy related courses.Now a postdoctoral research associate, Alex is working closely with industrial and academic connections using 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, and is currently involved in the Sheffield Innovation Programme, working with Sheffield-based businesses. The SIP project aims to stimulate local business growth and stimulate relationships between academia and industry within the Sheffield city region.
